Stringed instuments, tuningdevices for.-Fine tuning is effected by deflecting the string between the tail-piece and the bridge by means of a twoarmed lever 5 carried by a clip 20 mounted on the tail-piece 1. One arm of the lever carries a screw 6 which abuts against the upper surface of the clip and when turned presses the finger 8 on the string. The lever is of inverted channel section pressed in at the end 8, and is held between lugs 11 formed on the clip. The clip has a central slot forming it into a pair of U- shaped members. The upper leg of each U- shaped member has a recess 25 to take over the lip 26 on the tail-piece.
